Name Pronounced: fury
Appearance: Furiey is a older woman that looks great for her age. She still is quiet built since she has been a rider for a while. She has red hair with darker tones in it. She has a few grays threw her hair but nothing to drastic. Her skin is lightly sun touched though she has small freckles over her face, arms, and anywhere the sun has touched long enough. She has a shapely curve that she loves to have. She wears almost anything since she likes dresses but pants and a tunic are a must being a Dragonrider. Her left hand to a little below her elbow is useless from a thread score. She has lines over her hand where the thread landed before she could have Lorith jump between. She was lucky that it didnt make it so her arm had to be cut off but for some reason she can not use that arm. She can still move her elbow though with stiffeness but she is not able to use the hand for any use.
Personality: Furiey is a kind person in her older age. She wasn’t so kind when she was younger but she has calmed down a lot. She can still be a bit temperamental though she has learned to suppress it for the most part. She loves to tease some of the older riders since she has never been mated down for long. She gets bored when she has nothing to do since she has retired from the fighting wings. She still loves to learn since her boredom can grow easily if she cant do anything.
History: Furiey was born at Benden weyr to two riders. She didn’t know her parents since they didn’t want a flight baby. Being raised in the crèche as in her words “a unwantable” she grew up being a red headed devil. She hated that most of the children in the crèche knew who their parents were. She was probably the worst trouble maker at Benden weyr. She soon grew enough to enter Candidacy and showed that the things Candidates learned would keep her busy enough for long enough to keep her out of trouble most of the time. She soon found she had a hungry green on her hands when she went to her third hatching named Lorith. Furiey quickly and gladly into Weyrlinghood. She and Lorith who she calls Lori for short would end up leaving Weyrlinghood near the top of the class. Soon Furiey found she wasn’t such a troublemaker since Lori would talk her out of doing things that would get her in trouble. She lived through their thread fighting days with their fair share of thread scores. She soon found that she and Lori weren’t doing so good in thread. She had started to notice that both Lori and she were both ending up with smaller thread scores almost every time they flew. One just thread score caused her to have to leave thread fighting completely. She had been feeding Lorith firestone when a tangle of thread landed on her hand and arm. Lorith saw it about to hit her but was not able to between fast enough to dodge it from hitting Furiey. Soon Furiey found herself on the ground healers around her as she held her arm which was hurting like crazy. The healers had her hold her arm under water to make sure the thread was all dead. She was soon on the track to healing but found that she could not move her fingers. The healers tried to find out what was wrong but were not able to. Soon she was called to her wingleaders office one day and told that she should retire. She did knowing that she and Lori would end up not being able to fight since Furiey could not feed Lori firestoone well enough for fighting. She ended up asking for a transfer from Benden to a new Weyr called Arolos. She was allowed to go and she left betweening to Arolos. When she got there she took up being a Watchrider and sweeprider. She soon ended up getting two fire lizards to give her something to do while she would not have anything to do. She got better at making things with just her right hand though her domainant hand was her left.
